I usually hit this place up for a cocktail and/or lunch when in the area. I like to play trivia and watch a game, maybe shoot pool. Good sandwhiches. Place looks a bit aged, but always clean. Never had a bad bartender here.

My boyfriend and I met friends and family here for a little reunion one day. Management was awesome in accommodating our group and the food and drinks were excellent! Can't wait to go back for a tailgating party after a Hawkeye game some day!

Bellied up to the bar Saturday afternoon. Nice attentive bartenders. Good TV (Iowa Game) to watch. Lots of pool tables in other room. Wife paid the bill so don't know the prices. Good bar in the area we were staying. Will be back.

Charlie retired 2+ yrs ago, but she still pops in for a drink. New owners, same crowd & menu. Trivia night is fun. Had my Retirement party there, but don't remember much. Everyone brought me shots.

Great Sports Bar located by many hotels and close to campus. 19 HD TV's, 4 pool tables, extensive menu with great food including 12 different kinds of burgers, an amazing tenderloin, boneless and bone in meaty wings and tons of other stuff too. We hand patty our fresh burgers and make a lot of things from scratch. It is a must stop when you are in the area!!!
